How to Cook Kimberly’s Healthy Green Garden Vegetable Soup

I had no idea what I would make tonight for dinner for my family, except I wanted something warm like soup on this cold, rainy night.

I looked in the fridge and saw we happened to have a lot of green vegetables…This is my tasty creation everyone loved; there’s almost none left. Very healthy and warms your soul.


Type: Soup Recipe
Serve With: Fresh, crusty bread
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Yield: 1 large stock pot – Approximately 8 servings


  • 2 large Green Peppers – Chopped
  • 1 large bunch Kale – Washed & torn into bite size pieces minus stems
  • 1 large Cucumber – Quartered and chopped
  • 2 large handfuls Green Beans – Stem ends removed and chopped into 2″ long pieces
  • 2 large handfuls Snap Peas – Cut in half
  • 1 bunch Green Onions – Chopped minus root tips
  • 2 cups Celery – Sliced
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 large Onion – Chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic – Roughly chopped
  • 3 cups broth/stock – I used a mix of vegetable stock and chicken stock
  • 1 teapot Orange Pekoe (Black) Tea – Whatever brand you have on hand
  • 4 thick slices Bacon – Sliced
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Chili Powder
  • Freshly Cracked Black Pepper – To taste
  • Sea Salt – To taste


  1. In a large stock pot on medium heat, fry bacon.
  2. Once browned, add onions and sautee until they are transluscent – add olive oil if necessary and there isn’t much bacon fat from frying bacon.  Add garlic a few minutes before onions are done.
  3. Add rest of vegetables and spices, and stir.
  4. Add broth and tea and turn soup up to medium-high heat and simmer until vegetables are soft and adjust seasonings.
  5. Serve with fresh, crusty bread and Enjoy on a cold, rainy day!


  • To make this soup more hearty, add chicken breast or tofu.
  • Feel free to substitute other green vegetables you may have available locally or that happen to be in your fridge.
  • Go completely vegetarian by omitting the meat.
